  1. Here is a video what is happening. I had just opened S5 and opened the sequence. Went to the effect and opened it and tried to change it when it crashed. Thanks Matt
  2. I keep having the software crash on me. It started after I upgraded to 5.5.4. I have submitted several error reports. I am trying to get a video of what is happening. But I have text on my mega tree as a "Text" effect. I open up the effect and copy the text. I then click on "TextPE" effect and it crashing instantly. I have had it crash probably 10-12 times now while changing effects (don't think it's all be changing the same effect). And I just had it happen when i just opened the effect and tried to change from "Text" to "TextPE". I opened the software and opened my sequence. Once it rendered
  3. This happens to me all the time since the upgrade. So it's not just you Aubrey. You have to click to a different effect and then back to the one you want or just click the same effect again. Then the options will show up. I'm not on the software for more than 2 hours or so at a time and so I wouldn't say that I am on the software a long time. But this happens to me also.
  4. I have had LOR crash probably 7 or 8 times since upgrading Thursday. I have submitted the tickets through the software and also just submitted one through LOR website. Mine crashing when I am trying to change effects. This morning when it crashed I had text on my mega tree as the "Text" effect. I went to change it to "TextPE" and the software crashed. Never had this issue before I upgraded.
  5. Thank you. That will be so much better.
  6. Also I just tried to see what would happen if you went bigger than 1 second timings. Like 1.5 seconds. Not sure why you woood ever want to do that but when I did, the 1 second marks were still there. So there needs to be a way to turn that feature off. And yeah on the AC side, the background is grey and timing marks are black. Then you throw in a white, 1 second mark and it makes it hard to see. Especially when you have white in the sequence.
  7. Yeah to me it’s harder to see since that is the first thing I see when I look at the sequence. It’s not as bad on the pixel stuff with the black background. But most of what I do is AC for now and it’s annoying and harder for me to focus on what I’m sequencing since it stands out so much. And I know some people (yourself included) will like it. I would like an option to turn that off.
  8. I have been using S5 since last year. I upgraded to the newest 5.5.0 version. I notice there are white timing marks every second. All the other ones are black. Is there a way to make the second timing marks black? The white stands out to much to me and that is all I see when I look at the sequencer. I know it’s a small detail but I notice small details and this just looks weird to me and makes it harder for me to focus on the actual sequencing. I know some people will like it but for me personally, I don’t like it at all and makes it harder to use. So just wondering if there is a way to make b
  9. Could I get a copy of this? Thanks in advance. My email is joeycain@gmail.com "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share".
  10. Could I get a copy of this please? thanks in advance email is joeycain@gmail.com
  11. I am looking for the Oogie Boogie sequence from Nightmare Before Christmas. I know there are several versions of the song out. I have the 3:17 version (or close to that length). I have the singing faces for it, just not the music part sequenced (I have the mp3 already). Just wondering if anybody has it sequenced and would mind sharing it. I have searched the forums and haven't been able to find it yet. My email is joeycain@gmail.com. Thanks in advance
  12. Thanks. I’ll check into it more. I just know last year I had issues and saw where a lot of people did. I would still prefer to do it manually though. I’ve been working in IT for the last 16 years and I still do a lot of stuff the old way cause its how I know and like and I can see what’s happening and know if one part of something messes up. But I’ll check into doing it with 5.4.2 Thanks, Joey
  13. I know that has been talked about in the past. Just trying to maybe get more attention to it so maybe LOR will possibly add this feature back. But I think a lot of people that use S5 would like to be able to create their playback files manually. I know last year I went back to a version of S5 that allowed me to manually create my playback files. I forget what version I was using last year but I never could get my sequences to play and had to go back to an older version to be able to create them. I just hope that when it's time to start my shows, I can get the current version of S5 to work or h
  14. That is great. That will solve a lot of my issues. Everything works fine as far as sequencing except for that.
  15. k6ccc I have it happen when I am deleting color wash effects from a couple cells of open eyes and turning on a color wash for the eyes closed. I can go through and delete a couple sections and turn on the lights for the eyes closed and it freezes and I have to wait for it to catch up. Just seems like the simplest thing changed on the singing bulbs takes forever to recalculate. Changing something on the roof line it has to calculate the intensities again but doesn't take near as long TexasLights not sure what you mean by complexity of the preview. And not trying to bring anoth
  16. I have an i5 processor with I think 12GB of memory. It has Win 10 on it that I installed a couple months ago. Light O Rama is the only thing that is done on this computer. No web surfing or anything. We don't even have Internet at my house (I have to connect it to my cell phone if I do want Internet). I'm also the Lead (only) Technician at a computer repair store. I have worked there for over 16 years. I don't have this problem with my roof line (right at 1,000 pixels). It's with the 2 singing bulbs ( 340 pixels). Even if I just change the color of say the outline of the bulb, the orange circl
  17. When I’m changing something on the pixel side, it has to calculate the intensities of the new effect. While I understand it needs to calculate the intensity, it’s slows sequencing way down when it has to do it for every little thing that is changed. Now I’m sequencing 2 singing bulbs and the program keeps going “not responding” when I changed just one cell. My suggestion would be to add a feature to turn off the auto calculate intensities and give us a button to calculate intensities when we want to. Or just have it calculate when you hit play or even when you click on save. The auto
  18. You know I haven't thought about creating different groups arranged differently in the same Preview. Now I feel stupid for even asking that. Haha. I would delete the post just so I wouldn't look so dumb but I will leave it so somebody else won't have to ask. Thanks again. Joey
  19. I am adding a pixel tree this year to my show. I am trying to figure out how to add the singing face pictures to the tree. Think its like 10 pictures with the different mouth shapes for the different phonemes. I saw where you can do it manually by adding each picture you want to each effect. Just wondering if there is a faster way to do it for them without manually having to do it for each individual effect. Thanks in advance.
  20. On some sequences I want my roof outline to be arranged using the "Use Preview" arrangement. On other sequences I want the roof outline to use the "Nested Stack" arrangement. I use the different arrangements to change the way the effects look. Some effects look better on different ones. Currently if I change the arrangement on one sequence, it will change on all sequences that use that preview. Is there a way to use different arrangements on different sequences so it doesn't change all of them? I currently have to have 2 different previews, one using the roof as "Use Preview" and one using "Ne
  21. I have groups setup. guess I need to play around with how they are defined. this was my first year with pixels so still learning. Thanks
  22. I am having the same problem with S5. I need my roof outline to run in a single line across 2 controllers and can't add a second controller to it.
  23. I have my roof outlined in Pixels this year. I have a Pixie8 on that controls half my roof and a Pixie16 (will be changing this to a Pixie8 for next year). The Top Ridge on my house for example is running off one port on my Pixie8 (89 pixels) and one port on my Pixie16 (89 pixels). Each run starts on the outside edge of my house and runs to the middle of the house. It works but when I add an effect, each section either starts or stops at the middle of the house. Is there a way that I can make the entire ridge (178 pixels) appear as one string of lights even though its coming off 2 controllers
  24. I have windows 7. But I think I may have seen some people having the issue with windows 10
  25. I had the same issue. I was using 5.3.6 and upgraded to 5.3.8 and still had the same issue. I downgraded to 5.2.4 and was able to get my show scheduled.
